7 Jun ASTM A states zinc-rich paint with zinc dust in the ranges of % or above 92% in the dried film are equally effective. Why is there a gap. ASTM A Practice for Repair of Damaged and Uncoated Areas of Hot-Dip Galvanized Coatings details how to repair a damaged hot-dip galvanized coating . ASTM Designation: A (American Standard Testing Method). Standard Practice for Repair of Damaged and Uncoated Areas of Hot-Dip Galvanized Coatings.

Most organic paints containing zinc dust are axtm critical of climatic or atmospheric conditions for curing. Zinc-Rich Paints Zinc-rich paint is applied to a clean, dry steel surface by either a brush or spray.

This practice can also be used to repair hot-dip galvanized coatings damaged by excessively rough handling during shipping or erection. Do not average the readings, as this requirement was removed from the specifications in Topics will include proper equipment and materials to use while performing the process, explanation of the specifications to follow, and examples asym best practice during application of the repair materials.

Color red Pos 10 10 field service conditions include immersion. The method and extent of surface preparation shall be mutually agreeable to the contracting parties. Although the hot-dip galvanized coating is very resistant to damage, small voids or defects in the coating can occur during the galvanizing process or due to improper handling of the steel after galvanizing. The practice is the same, but there are more restrictions to the allowable repairs on a new product than one that has been in service.

The zinc coating is difficult to damage, and field fabrication that requires removal of the coating should be minimized as much as possible. Surface Preparation Always check for visible contaminants on the surface of the repair area just prior to mechanical cleaning. There is no ASTM specification which specifies a maximum allowable repair size for galvanized items already accepted and delivered.


The most common types of solders are zinccadmium, zinc-tin-lead, and zinc-tin-copper alloys.

Surface profiling for abrasive blast cleaned surfaces may be performed using any method listed within ASTM D visual comparator, surface profile depth micrometer, or replica tape.

Requirements concerning the renovation of uncoated areas remaining after initial hot-dip galvanizing w780 contained within the applicable material specification. The following general guidelines shall apply: Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining a78 in any way.

Watch the Videos The main restriction in the specification for repairing newly galvanized material is the size of the area which is outlined in the product galvanizing specifications: Finally, a visual inspection to confirm the level of cleanliness must be carried out to ensure the standard is met.

Specification D describes the zinc dust component of these paints. Experience shows that in general organic zinc-rich asm are more tolerant of surface preparation.

For less critical field exposure conditions, blast clean the surface to near-white metal, in accordance with SSPC-SP10 1 to 2 mil 25 to 50 m anchor patternas a minimum.

The practice for repairing the galvanized coating in-field is the same as the practice for repair at the galvanizing facility, but there are more restrictions to the allowable repair size while at the galvanizing facility. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Apply the paint as recommended by the paint manufacturer in a single application employing multiple spray passes to achieve a dry film thickness to be agreed upon between the contracting parties.


ASTM A780-Zinc Dust in Paint

Touch-up and repair of galvanized steel is simple whether newly galvanized or in service for years. To ensure that a smooth reconditioned coating can be effected. Inch-pound units and SI units are not necessarily exact equivalents.

Wire brush the surface to be reconditioned during preheating. The information provided herein is not intended as a representation or warranty on the part of the AGA.

Brite Zinc meets and exceeds this percent. Appropriate grinding tools include reciprocating sanders, orbital sanders, or grinding devices that utilize abrasive cloths, discs, wheels or flaps. Always check for visible contaminants on the surface of the repair area just prior to mechanical cleaning. Where circumstances do not allow blast cleaning, it is permissible to power disk sand areas to be repaired to bright astn.

The damage may be the result of welding or cutting flamein which case the coating will be damaged predominantly by burning. Each system shall be used independently of the other without combining values in any way.

Annex A2 describes the use of paints containing zinc dust.

Experience shows that in general. If replica tape is utilized, two readings are to be taken over each location and averaged to get one “measurement” of the profile of the surface. Corrosion resistance and service performance are very dependent on the properties of the paint system, the extent of surface preparation, and skills of individual applicators.

ASTM A contains three acceptable methods of touch-up and repair of hot-dip galvanized steel: Therefore, once in-field, any size of repairable coating defect can be touched up.
